How can you use “anti-apoptotic” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Similarly, inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors (IP3R) are intracellular calcium release channels involved in diverse signaling pathways and are required for the activation of T lymphocytes [ 33 ] . Tat (also implicated as a neurotoxin) has been shown to release calcium from inositol 1,4, 5-trisphosphate (IP3) receptor-regulated stores in neurons and astrocytes causing premature apoptosis [ 34 ] . Down-regulation of IP3 may therefore contribute to viral latency and maintenance of an anti-apoptotic state in cells.

  • Akt directly phosphorylates and inactivates the pro-apoptotic proteins ASK1, BAD, caspase 9 [ 21 22 23 24 ] . Akt also induces the expression of the anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 and c-FLIP proteins, and suppresses the cell cycle inhibitor p27 KIP [ 25 26 27 28 ] . This later effect is via the phosphorylation and inactivation of the forkhead family of transcription factors AFX, FKHR and FKHR-L1.

  • For example, activation of the p110-PI 3-kinase/PKB pathway delivers an anti-apoptotic signal to the cell [ 23, 25, 47].

  • Three members of the IAP family ( c-IAP1, c-IAP2, NAIP ) had very short mRNA half-lives and encode anti-apoptotic proteins that act by directly binding to caspases 3, 7, and 9 [ 27].

  • Mcl-1 is an anti-apoptotic member of the Bcl-2 family whose expression is correlated with decreased apoptosis and increased survival in human neutrophils [ 15 16 ] . Western blot analysis showed that neutrophils from control animals did not express Mcl-1 protein (Fig.
